The Advantages of Dermal Fillers to Fight Against the Aging Process
It’s a fact of life, as you age, your face continually changes. The aging process affects us all, though some more than others, with most of the physical changes appearing in our faces and necks.
Innovative treatments like dermal fillers have been used for years to prevent wrinkles and lines, and to prevent the appearance of aging. They are designed to revitalize and refresh your skin, giving you back the appearance of youth that you once had.
As we age, the outline of our face changes geometrically from a triangle with the apex pointing downward to a more trapezoidal shape due to gravitational effects on our skin. With time, the force in which gravity pulls our skin causes sagging and drooping, resulting in wrinkles.
These factors, along with the natural loss of subcutaneous fat, are often accelerated by: Smoking, genes, stress, diseases, weight changes, exposure to harsh climates.
Dermal fillers work to reverse these visible signs of the aging process by restoring fullness and volume in the face. They can positively alter those places on our face where we see the most changes, bringing back the youth we have longed for. Including,
– plumping up thin lips
– enhancing natural face contours
– softening wrinkle trouble spot
– and reducing the appearance of scars.
Though there are many types of dermal fillers available, not all of them work in the same ways. The most commonly used types are Juvederm, Juvederm Ultra Plus, Belotero, Restylane, and Perlane. Which can all be used in conjunction with Botox.
For some patients, however, dermal fillers aren’t an option. These special situations call for a more refined approach. When non-surgical fillers and rejuvenation treatments won’t do, the only viable options is to look into surgical treatments like a facelift.
